Click above to help sponsor Walt in an ALS walk, October 1.  He is a "designated walker" for someone who had signed up and then can't participate, but Walt's good friend Bill Cunningham died of ALS and he was more than happy to do the walk.  Let me show him that my readers are stsanding behind him!  (The name on the account is Lion-Carlos Carvajal and the team is the Yolo Sunset Lions Club).  Thanks!!!


30 September, 2011

I don't know why I'm so tired.  All I did today was sit and hold babies.  But I'm exhausted and it's not even 11 p.m.  In fact, I may finish this entry tomorrow if I don't pick up some energy soon.

The morning was quiet.  I sat around, wrote post cards, took a shower, watched Jon Stewart's interview of Bill O'Reilly and waited to hear from Tom

At about 1:45, I arrived at Tom's house.  Bri was off at her nanny's for the afternoon so it was just Lacie.  I had lots of Lacie time.

Tom was tickled that he'd found this perfect "Lacie bug"

He also decided that maybe she's still a little too young to do Bri's trick.

I kind of sat and held her off and on until time to go to the train station to pick up Walt, who had flown into Burbank and then took the train up to Santa Barbara.  Fortunately he had brought with him gifts for the girls that I ordered and hoped would arrive before I left (they arrived just after I left).

(there are also clip-on bows for Brianna...they're all set for the next 49er game!)

Tom and I drove to the train station to get Walt so he could meet his new granddaughter.  It was hard to tell who was the prouder, Walt or Tom!

Bri got home from the Nanny's and exploded into the house.  I gave her a plate I had picked up that afternoon, something that I hope will make it more fun for her to eat, since she still is a very picky eater.

I don't know if decorating a face on a plate with food will help her eat better, but it was a cute idea anyway.

We finally had to leave to drive to Alice Nan's stepdaugter's house.  Jocelyn and her husband David are two of my favorite people. It was beautiful watching their courtship, attending their wedding and now, today, meeting their daughter Charlee (Charlotte).

Charlee was born about 10 days before Lacie and the difference really shows.  She tracks you with her eyes, for example.

We were all going to a Mexican restaurant in Montecito, not only Walt and I but also Joe, Alice, the baby's parents, and Joe's older daughter  with her own daughter.  Naturally, Charlee, at the head of the table, got all the attention.

(these are NOT the faces of proud parents, of course!)

And Grandpa Joe took his turn at keeping Charlee entertained.

But now it's late, everyone else is in bed and I am going there myself very, very soon.  A day filled with cute little babies is always a happy day! But tomorrow we are already headed in the car, back to Davis! Both little girls will have changed a lot by the time we see them next!


Everybody say "Go Niners!"
